a debt ceiling debate that's going to be coming in the next few months. while they passed two budgets they haven't gone through the whole process. we could continue with a number of stop gap measures keeping government from shutting down until someone comes to a big agreement. host: on our line for republicans, go ahead. caller: thank you sir for taking my call which really enjoy c-span. i don't get to watch it much due to the fact i'm in school monday through friday. i'm an american government teacher and have been for the last 19 years and i have a question the for your young lady. i would like her to define the word politico. that's the first question. number two, what is frightening for the student i face daily and have faced for the past 19 we now the fact that govern by party, we don't govern by the constitution. ealthcare not mentioned in the document. not expressly or interntly mentioned by the document. if washington would have thought it was important, it would have been in there. secondly resolutions as you mentioned are not binding and all it does is increase the burden o
stepped back because we do have this debt ceiling vote coming up soon. we have to stop the spending -- >> neil: you used to work there, and i always think there's a method to all madness, and i think that someone there, within the ranks of the party establish; must be saying, we can't agreg aggressively push this because maybe in and of itself, pushing the idea of immediately attacking the debt and we don't, immediately backfires on us. >> i'll go bark the words of the former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mullen who said our debt is the most critical national security crisis of the country. that it is coming from the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. i believe everybody else in washington, dc would get onboard. you would not think that something such as that financial matter would have something to do with national security but it does you. look at what its going on with the missile interceptors we're moving up into alaska, it's costing us now two to three times what should it have cost, and we'll hear to borrow money from china, in order to have a missile defense shiel
when he rattled off a list of potentially dangerous consequences of not raising the debt ceiling back in 2011. >> no federal government employees, including counterterrorism agents, in the fbi, for example, no border agents. now, before we default, we could have time to make this sign for all points of entry. that's just the tip of the iceberg. >> i think he was being sarcastic, don't you? >>> now to the ones who were ill advised for whatever reason. first iowa republican congressman steve king with the solution for illegal immigration in the form of a construction project on the house floor. >> you can't shut that off unless we build a fence and wall. i want to put a fence in and a wall in. i designed one. this would be an example, then, of how that wall would look. you can also deconstruct it the same way. you can take it back down. i also say we need to do a few other things on top of that wall. one of them put a little bit of wire on top to provide a disincentive for people to climb over top or put a ladder there. we can electrify this wire, not a current that would kill anybody,
't and jumped out at me. one of the things we heard going back to the debt ceiling negotiations in the summer of 2011, john boehner saying in effect the president played loosesy and -- lucy and yanked football and was not keeping his word on obligations he said he would undertake. i wonder if joe biden going back to offer a at this time for at that time argument? would be interesting to for reporters would follow up. what were the five occasions? what were the specific deals and how did republicans back out at them? bill: what date did it happen and what did republicans supposedly promise you and how did they renege on that. >> right. bill: here is john boehner, 10 days ago, similar topic here. listen to the speaker. >> republicans want to balance the budget. the president doesn't. republicans want to solve our long-term debt problem. the president doesn't. we want to unlock our energy resources to put more americans back to work. the president doesn't. bill: he also said it will take more than dinner dates and phone calls. and that goes back to your point about the charm offensive. like, wha
the debt ceiling is hit. i think that's the most fertile time for us. i think what republicans want to see, wolf, they want to see a 75-year actuary soundness. we want to make sure the programs are going to be there for the future. the president knows we want to make sure these programs are there, and what the presidents wants, obviously, is some additional revenue. i believe there's a possibility if we could get the 75-year soundness on medicare and social security with appropriate changes and reforms, i think there may be a way through full tax reform to do something that will generate revenue and fit the needs of both sides, and that's what i'm hopeful is going to happen over the next four months. look, there's no negotiation that's happening right now. there's some general discussions that have taken place, but i think the environment is going to be the best that it's been in the next several months. >> just to be precise, under certain circumstances to save social security and medicare over 75 years, you'd be willing to raise tax revenue. do you have a number, two to one, three to one
